One can never say no to a sumptuous spread of bite-sized delights, bursting with colours, flavours, and all things tiny and delicious. From fluffy filled baos to open-faced dumplings, the bountiful assortment of dishes is why dim sum is so well-loved. But the true beauty of dim sum lies beyond the actual food. Rather, it’s the bonding and sharing among loved ones that makes everything worthwhile.
While some dim sum places do not cater to the Muslim community, there are many wonderful halal dim sum eateries sprinkled across Klang Valley that don’t compromise on taste and quality.
Here, we have 4 halal places to get your dim sum fix, and the best way to enjoy it is with your friends and family. So grab the keys to your Mitsubishi Outlander, get comfortable, and let the food adventures begin!

Parking around here can be a challenge, but with the Outlander’s all-around monitor, you get to see your surroundings via multiple cameras fitted around the vehicle — including a reverse camera for easier, safer parking and the built-in Driving Video Recorder (DVR) to capture any road incidents that may occur.

Bringing the charm of Chinese teahouses and the Cantonese brunch concept to Malaysia and the halal world, Mohd Chan aims to redefine Cantonese cuisine in the halal food world. Head to Sunway GEO, MyTown Shopping Centre, or Subang Parade for some authentic dim sum like chee cheong fun, siew bao, shang hai dumplings, and lotus leaf rice.
On your way to one of the branches, entertain yourself with the Xpander’s 7-inch audio touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay as you soak in the scenic views with the sunroof and wide windows. Rest assured that every passenger will enjoy a safe, comfortable ride with the 7 SRS airbags and dual-zone climate control, allowing both driver and passenger sides to adjust their temperature zones for air conditioning.
When it comes to food adventures, it’s the entire journey that makes them so exciting. Sure, the highlights that are often talked about may be the dining experience itself, but that’s just part of the fun. Rounding up the group, getting there, chatting away while the food is being prepared and served, and recapping the entire experience on the ride home, are all equally as enjoyable and memorable.
From the stacks of steamed baskets of mouth-watering dim sum, to the abundance of space in the Mitsubishi Xpander, more really is merrier. For tasty journeys and belly-warming adventures, you can count on the Outlander to be your companion through them all.
